Beats the Nikon 18-55mm kit lens hands down

A.C. Just Anouther Dinosaur, B&H Photo
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: In a different review I berated the 18-55mm kit lens and gave it a 1-star review. That was much higher than it deserved. The 18-55mm kit lens came with my D5200 a couple of years ago.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Bokeh, Reliable, Sharp
  • Cons: Aperture Not Wide Enough, Pricey

Nikon 16 - 85 mm Critical Review

David, B&H Photo
29 July 2015
  • Excerpt: For general purpose, all-around photography, Nikon's kit lenses - the ones which come as part of a package deal with a camera outfit - are very good. One reviewer, for his / her purposes, found the 18 - 105 lens "just as good" as the 16 - 85 mm lens. For that person's use, I have no argument.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Fantastic Wide angle & sharp on D7200.

  • Excerpt: I often take photos of groups of people near collectables in homes. This zoom lens with 16 mm wide angle (24 mm equivalent on the Nikon D 7200) is perfect for this. The usual 28 mm equivalent wide angle zoom is not adequate.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Highly recommended for general purpose photos indoors or out.

  • Summary: First I chose this lens to be my "normal" zoom lens. In other words if I want to take only one lens with me this is the one. Then I chose a Nikon 24 Mpixel DX body to capture the images from this lens.

Perfect marriage with a D7100

Tomr23692, B&H Photo
12 April 2015
  • Excerpt: For me this is the perfect lens. Its a big upgrade over the 18-70mm that I had paired with a D5000. I'm using this lens with a D7100 and the combination of the two is a giant leap in flexibility.
  • Pros: Easy To Use

Very satisfied

Alaska Joe, B&H Photo
12 April 2015
  • Excerpt: This and the D7200 are now my walk-around alternative to the D800E and 24-120 f/4. I love the smaller, lighter combination for casual, and sometimes serious use. Build quality of the lens is fine, optical is fine too.

Good "Do everything range" lens

John, B&H Photo
18 March 2015
  • Excerpt: When you want to travel light and carry just one lens this one has merit. The wide end is hard to find in DX lens and this one produces very nice images. A bit soft on the edges wide open at 16 but very acceptable.

Excellent Lens

Mark, B&H Photo
16 March 2015
  • Excerpt: This is my second copy of this lens. I used the old one for about 80% of my shots over the last few years on a D200 and D7100. The old one was damaged, and I figured it made more sense, given the price, to buy a new one rather than repair it. The 24 Mp on the D7100 provides a good test of sharpness.
  • Pros: Durable, Sharp
  • Cons: Heavy

Always on the camera 24/7

  • Summary: Most definitely the MAIN gotta have walk around lens. Heck -- 24mm to 128mm (smaller format) is all that you need 95% of the time. Light fast focus - really a elegant lens. Love it!

This lens is not about the numbers.

Adorama
31 January 2015
  • Excerpt: This might just be the most overlooked lens in Nikon's DX line-up. When shopping around, I saw a lot of criticism online for the lack of zoom range and high price. This lens is not about the numbers, but all about image quality while offering a zoom range that covers 90% of what most of us actually...
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Image Quality, Low Ca's, Reliable, Sharp
